Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Strong, dark stems clothed in olive-green spiny, deeply divided leaves hold aloft globular white flowerheads, which are a magnet for pollinators. Echinops sphaerocephalus ‘Arctic Glow’ continues to have an architectural presence long after the blooms have finished and dried heads make an interesting addtion to flower arrangements. It’s a great perennial for adding distinctive spherical shapes to a border and contrasting them with upright accents such as Salvias and Agastache. Flowering later in the season, in July and August, it also adds dramatic interest at a time when border displays are often waning. Drought and heat tolerant. Height: 1m (39in). Spread: 50cm (20in).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Height Up to 60cm (24in)
Spread Up to 45cm (18in)

Echinops plants thrive on poor, well drained soils, but will grow in most soils and situations. Choose a position in full sun or semi shade.
Feed and water regularly until are fully established. Globe Thistles seed freely and the ornamental seed heads provide further late summer interest if left intact. If seedlings are not required, simply deadhead the faded flowers.
